1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

I take care of my daughter and my mother.

2. Why do you make art?

Because that's what I love to do, so everything I look at inspires me.

3. What inspires you?

Nature, people, animals. I love to paint wildlife, landscape, flowers and figurative. My focus is to paint as real as possible. This is what I love, this is my challenge.

4. What/who are your influences?

All that is alive and the great masters of painting: Like Vermeer, Caravaggio, DaVinci, Michelangelo, Bouguereau, Edgar Degas, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh and many others.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

Caravaggio. Why him? Because I'm impressed with the way he painted and all the representation that he gave his works.
